"Perpetual Check is a page-turner with a resolution readers won't see coming. It will please anyone who appreciates interesting characters and mysteries that deliver the unexpected."

                                                        BlueInk, Starred Review


"Clever and surprising, Perpetual Check is a thrilling novel set during the intersection between the decline of the Soviet Union and the dawn of the computer age."

                                                   Clarion, Foreword Reviews


"An espionage thriller that follows the genre's form while also adding some unique wrinkles and scenery all its own."


It’s 1985, and the prospect of getting away from her domineering mother leads Dani Morden to accept an invitation to England from her Aunt Lucy. She anticipates a week of sipping tea, touring museums, and being bored silly. What she gets is murder, espionage, and running from unknown killers who are convinced she has something they want. 

Dani faces dangerous people, hate-fueled by bitter Cold War politics, but to get her and her aunt out alive, she will need to confront the bitterness that festers inside her first.
